Organizers of the May marijuana marches around the planet announced this week that they had at least 150 cities signed up for the annual event, known colloquially as the Million Marijuana March. For the past three decades, beginning in New York City, pot activists have marched and chanted, huffed and puffed, and been clubbed and jailed in their effort to achieve marijuana legalization.

This year, long-time lead organizer Dana Beal is sharing the organizing duties with other activists around the globe, especially an active group of "guys from Norway," who have created a central web site for would-be organizers to sign up their cities. People interested in signing up should do so within the next two weeks so their city can be added to the march poster, Beal told DRCNet on Wednesday.

As in past years, Europe and North America are most heavily represented, but this year's list already includes Capetown, South Africa, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, three Japanese cities, and at least a dozen cities in South America. Russian organizers have said they would hold events in 23 cities, but Beal is awaiting confirmation of that, he said. Other confirmed locations range from Auckland, Albuquerque and Amsterdam to Washington, Wellington, and Zurich. The date is May 6.
